If you haven’t heard the news yet, we are pregnant!!! This is such a blessing because we had been trying to get pregnant since the fall of 2008. It has been a journey of faith, and we feel God is blessing us tremendously by answering our prayers.
My wife told me the news on a night that I was leaving for a Chick Fil A opening in Nashville, TN. While I was feverishly packing up, she asked me to come in our room for a second. She gave me a card that said, “we’ll miss you while you are gone.” My immediate thought was, “typo”. And then it registered… “WE”??? “REALLY”??!!!!????!!!! We hugged and laughed and cried together all at the same time. It was a precious moment that I’ll never forget.
Then, I packed up my car and drove 4 hours away for 2 days, leaving my pregnant wife behind to go score some free chicken. I know. Crazy, right? Because of some health complications she had as a child, my wife wanted to keep the news to ourselves until we were further along in the pregnancy. But, we are now nearly 13 weeks and everything is going great! We’re still praying for a healthy pregnancy and baby.
So, as I take care of my sleepy, nauseous wife, we are looking forward to the great adventure of parenting that lies in front of us.
Watch the video below to see our church’s reaction to telling the news (a few in the room knew already and several folks were absent for the big news, but still a lot of fun!). Hooray! In September, we’ll finally get to use some of these baby blankets!test Filed under Pregnancy, Videos | Tags: Pregnancy, pregnant | Comment (0)
